Help reunite us with holiday memories
AN Australian couple who lost the precious photos from their Welsh “holiday of a lifetime” are appealing to the people of North Wales to reunite them with the images.
Beverley Czerniawski and her husband Mitch were devastated to lose their Panasonic Lumix Digital camera on Wednesday, July 1. The camera was lost on either Mostyn Street, Madoc Street or Vaughan Street in Llandudno.
It contained hundreds of images from their month-long trip to Wales.
The couple, who have been married for 35 years, have now returned to their home in Melbourne, but contacted the Daily Post in a last-ditch attempt to get their camera or at least their memory stick back.
Beverley said: “I don’t really care that much about the camera, but the memory stick had four weeks of photos on it, which I would dearly love to get back.
“I’m offering 100 Australian dollars to anyone who can help.
“My husband and I loved Wales. We had always wanted to visit as I love hearing the Welsh accent and have heard a few Welsh choirs.
“It is such a lovely country and the weather was superb, so the photos are special.
“We thought North Wales was beautiful, especially Snowdonia.
“Other favourites were Conwy, LLangollen, Llandudno and the Brecon Beacons.
“We were prepared for the rain but we had hardly any at all, so that was a real bonus.”
While in Llandudno, Beverley checked to see if the camera had been handed in at the police station or the tourist information centre, but to no avail.
She said: “I love making photo albums and was so looking forward to making my ‘Wales’ album. I was devastated when I found my camera was lost.
“I retraced my steps the day following the loss, as I had absolutely no idea how or where in particular I had lost it.
“I had so many pictures of wonderful buildings that had stood for hundreds of years, quaint streets, proud castles and picturesque countryside.
“If somebody could return it, I’d be so happy.” ■
